What is a natural source of VOCs?
Name a Superfund site other than Love Canal.
How/Where does Aluminum bioaccumulate in aquatic organisms?
1. One natural source of VOCs are volcanoes. Others include many plants (and, specifically, plants generally produce terpenes)
2. Valley of the Drums
3. Aluminum can be leached by the effects of acid rain and negatively impact the growth of aquatic organisms. And does it bioaccumulate in fatty tissues of aquatic organisms? I think, generally, when pollutants bioaccumulate its in the fatty tissues but I'm not entirely sure about aluminum.

What percentage of energy transfers to the next level in a trophic pyramid? (I know it's easy...just trying to revive the thread)
